Air Seychelles resumed its flight operations between Mumbai and Seychelles on April 8 this year, and on the first day itself, departing from Mumbai, recorded a Passenger Load Factor (PLF) of 80 per cent. It continues to now build awareness of its products & services in India.
Air Seychelles successfully resumed its commercial passenger flights from Mumbai to Seychelles on April 8 in line with the air bubble agreement between India and Seychelles. The flight on the first day carried 120 passengers, around an 80 per cent load factor for the airline, from Mumbai. Seychelles has opened its borders for tourists from across the world irrespective of their vaccination status. In fact, the East African nation already has 85 per cent of its population vaccinated, posing no threat to tourists. Hence, good air connectivity, fewer travel restrictions and with relevant safety protocols in place, Seychelles is all set to inspire confidence in Indians to travel to the white-sand-adorned island nation.
The new twice-weekly flights departing from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai, will operate on Thursdays and Sundays. Return flights from Seychelles International Airport are scheduled for Wednesdays and Saturdays. The schedule has been curated to provide business and leisure travellers the flexibility to book a short or extended holiday in the Seychelles. The airline plans to soon connect to more cities within India.
Remco Althuis, Chief Executive Officer, Air Seychelles, says, “To stimulate demand on this route, Air Seychelles will continue to work with its partners in India to build awareness about the airline’s products, services and attractive fares on offer to destination Seychelles. Our partner agents are also combining interesting tour packages to the beautiful islands and with Air Seychelles’ direct flights. If you are tired of being indoors and want to completely disconnect from the bustling city life, Seychelles is the ideal location for your holiday.”
